Jesus is many things. Besides being Lord of the universe He is also a friend who sticks closer than a brother; He is a shepherd tending to His sheep; He is a high-priest forever; He is the rainbow in the clouds, the bright morning star, the hope for the nations, the King who goes to bat for His people, the sacrificial lamb, and the list goes on and on. The reason we write and talk about these truths is God’s tireless communication.
Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who does not speak your language? It can get very frustrating trying to communicate when words fail us. God has been in the business of translating His thoughts into human language ever since we left the Garden of Eden. God has become an expert interpreter because He yearns to connect with his beloved creatures, people He made in His image. We are His loved ones.
If you know somebody who lost a person to Alzheimer’s disease, you probably know how painful it is to lose connection with a loved one when communication ceases. In a manner of speaking we all are battling severe memory loss by forgetting where we came from. We all come from God. And God uses His finest efforts to communicate this particular truth to us. Understanding the truth is like the break of dawn with the Sun rising in our hearts; God will be happiest to know we have received His message. His highest hope is for us to understand that He loves us dearly.
“If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell” Gordon Lightfoot
